In the second game of the last triple header of the CSA T20 Challenge 2019, second placed Cobras travel to Kingsmead, Durban as they face a Dolphins side, looking to sneak into the top four at the expense of the Titans.

Needing a bonus point and a Titans loss for the aforementioned to happen, Dolphins do have the necessary players with Morne van Wyk and Andile Phehlukwayo in their ranks.

With a win against Warriors doing a world of good to their morale, Dolphins will be hopeful of another good performance against an in-form Cobras side boasting of the likes of Amla and Philander.

With both teams looking to make full use of the conditions in Durban, here are a few tips to help you pick your Dream11 team.

Squads to choose from


Keshav Maharaj, Andile Phehlukwayo, Calvin Savage , Cody Chetty, Dane Vilas, David Miller, Eathan Bosch, Imran Tahir, Kerwin Mungroo, Khaya Zondo, Lwandiswa Zuma, Morne van Wyk, Mthokozisi Shezi, Okuhle Cele, Prenelan Subrayen, Robbie Frylinck, Sarel Erwee, Senuran Muthusamy, Sibonelo Makhanya, Smangaliso Nhlebela, Vaughn van Jaarsveld


Lizaad Williams, Dane Piedt, Dayyaan Galiem, Jason Smith, Dane Paterson, Aviwe Mgijima, George Linde, Ferisco Adams, Simon Khomari, Zubayr Hamza, Kyle Verreynne, Tladi Bokako, Pieter Malan, Janneman Malan, Mthiwekhaya Nabe, David Bedingham, Hashim Amla

Playing XI Updates



After a win in their previous game, Dolphins shouldn't be making any changes to their side with Vaughn van Jaarsveld slamming a hundred against a decent Warriors bowling unit. In Andile Phehlukwayo and Robbie Frylinck, they have a potent death bowling duo along with Keshav Maharaj's left arm spin to cause havoc amongst the Cobras.

The onus will be on their top order as they look to sneak into the semi-finals being held next week.

Possible XI: van Jaarsveld, van Wyk (WK), Chetty, Zondo(C), Phehlukwayo, Muthusamy, Makhanya, Frylinck, Maharaj, Dupavillon and Subrayen.


With a home-semi final in their sights, Cobras should field their strongest side although Hashim Amla's form is a cause for concern.

His opening partner, Janneman Malan has been in terrific form and will be their go-to player while their bowling trio of Philander, Kleinveldt and Bokako could go a long way in deciding the outcome of the match.

Possible XI: Amla, Malan, Bedingham (WK), Duminy, Smith, Mgijima, Linde, Philander, Kleinveldt (C), Bokako and Serame

28th April 2019, 6:00 PM IST

Kingsmead, Durban

Pitch Report:

Spinners should come into play in Durban with a few cracks on what is a good pitch to bat on. 160 is par on this surface which could potentially see an ultra-attacking approach from the home side as they look to gain a bonus point to reach the semi-finals.

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:

Wicket-keeper: Considering his current form, Morne van Wyk is the ideal candidate over youngster Kyle Verreynne. Van Wyk has been sensational at the top of the order with fast starts and could be pivotal during the powerplay overs.

Batsmen: Hashim Amla and Vaughn van Jaarsveld shouldn't be counted out with their experience bound to come in handy while the in-form David Bedingham and Cody Chetty are also worthy candidates for the fantasy team.

Amla's opening partner, Janneman Malan has also done well this season and could slot in for Amla if necessary.

Allrounders: Andile Phehlukwayo, Vernon Philander and JP Duminy are the ideal set of players in the fantasy team with their international experience bound to come in handy. With their campaign on the line, Phehlukwayo needs to fire with his performances crucial to the Dolphins' fortunes.

Bowlers: Robbie Frylinck and Rory Kleinveldt are must have players in the side while Keshav Maharaj has been in good form as well over the last month or so. Prenalen Subrayen is also a viable option worth looking into.

Captain: Andile Phehlukwayo and Hashim Amla are the front-runners for captaincy with their obvious talents with the bat in hand. Along with them, JP Duminy could also have a say in the proceedings and is a genuine contender for captaincy
